Europe’s Top Musical Moments

Enjoy Rick's live Monday Night Travel party with this video recorded on March 1, 2021. Experience the fun, conviviality, intimacy, and spontaneity of joining Rick in his living room as he shares his personal, inspirational, and sometimes hilarious behind-the-scenes commentary.

Join Rick for his favorite European musical moments: enjoying Edvard Grieg fjordside in Norway, sharing the bench with Europe's top pipe organist in Paris' Church of Saint-Sulpice, waltzing to the three-four beat of Johann Strauss in Vienna, remembering Mozart in Salzburg, and being swept away by flamenco in Spain — topped off by Rick all dressed up to introduce a rousing performance of Ode to Joy. And we'll enjoy a special treat when Rick demonstrates at his own piano (with a little Scarlatti, Mozart, Chopin, and Debussy) how music held hands with the visual arts as it evolved through the ages.
